The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) was established in April 2013 by the Health and Social Care Act 2012. It is responsible for collecting, transporting, storing, analysing and disseminating the nation’s health and social care data.

The HSCIC is responsible for providing a trusted, safe haven for some of an individual’s most sensitive information. It is also responsible for building and delivering the technical systems that enable that data both to be used to support that individual’s care and to deliver better, more effective care for the community as a whole.

This document sets out how we are going to fulfil these responsibilities.
